Come on Safe-ari™ with us as we learn from the experts. Safari pictures introduce your people to key concepts of situational awareness, and through discussion questions, the bridge is made to the work environment. A 23-page laminated slide deck is perfect for morning “toolbox” talks. Talking points, learning objectives and discussion questions on the back of each picture makes it easy to prompt a meaningful conversation of exploration, learning and back-home application. Topics that may be difficult to raise-up in the business-setting find easy access when people are taken out of their normal worldview into the Savannah. Key touchstone statements can easily be remembered and used after each session to lock-in situational awareness behaviors; phrases like ,”hippo heads,” “hazards on the prowl,” and “got your back.”
Discussions are followed with a Safe-ari around your own “Savannah” tracking hazards with your own Safety Guide. This is a new and novel approach to developing situational awareness with a capstone training event for your safety leaders…a real safari!
Why do we need to improve our safety awareness? This is why:
Recently, I was in a shop and a worker showed me his arm. It looked awful! Thought he had a bad skin disease. Turns out these are irritations and burns from removing parts through hot machine oil. His supervisor’s response to this situation, “sucks to be you.” If this is a tolerable situation to management, makes you wonder what else is going on in the business with quality, maintenance and customers.
